Greg Taylor: 6 – Struggled to show his quality on a sticky pitch, outpaced for Hereford’s goal but won some important headers.

Steve McNulty: 6.5 – Beast at the back never shirked a challenge or a header.

Alex Lawless: 6.5 – Tried to get the ball down and play but was missing his recent zing and zest.

Scott Rendell: 6 – Should have equalised for Luton on the stroke of half time after being well marshalled, and injury forced him off.

Jake Howells: 8 – Welsh U21 international is gradually rediscovering his confidence and with it his form to go with his undoubted ability.

Arnaud Mendy: 7 – Put in a number of well-timed tackles as Luton wrestled control of the midfield.

Jonathan Smith: 7.5 – All-action display and twice went close with long-range strikes that deserved goals.

Ronnie Henry: 6.5 – No alarm bells defensively and, although he got some good cross in they could be even more incisive.

Andre Gray: 6.5 – Never really got going first half, but when he did he made a real difference.

Jake Goodman: 6.5 – Caught flat-footed for Hereford’s goal but bravely put his head injury to one side to last the 90 minutes.

Alex Wall (sub): 6 – Physical approach cause the visitors problems and displayed some nice ball skills.

JJ O’Donnell (sub): 6 – Keen to get on the ball and went close with his later curler.

David Martin (sub): 6 – Went from would-be villain to Hatters hero.
